Scala at Prezi: Introduction of ZIO

It was amazing to see how we can compose solutions, implement complex retry logic in one line, run things parallel, and how the explicit error types help design our system.

Getting Started with Scala.js and Vite / Let´s talk about Scala 3

Learn how Scala.js and Vite can be wired together for a fast edit-reload cycle: changes in Scala source files are propagated through the Scala.js incremental linker and down to Vite's live reloading. We also set up a production build.
